Arguably the most controversial piece of fast food ever, the double down is back in canada after selling over a million sandwiches last year. This version is “healthier”, having reduced the amount of sodium, fat and overall calories–but is the double down really the demon spawn of fast food? It’s been vilified in the press, seemingly more than other offerings–but how does the double down compare?

So the double down is not exactly health food, but not exactly killer chicken–in moderation. This is not an endorsement of the dirty bird, but when it comes to
fast food, your choice should be made (if you’re concerned about such things) with the help of the nutrition info and not just the press.
